the national ample is, 8.2. >> sure. romney has gone to areas where unemployment is higher to feel his message will resonate better there. >> bret: women's issues. it seems like the percentage of women voting in colorado and maybe even in this area in particular is higher. >> women vote more than men do in colorado. last time they were 53% of the vote. but that is the roadmap. that is the model that the democrats used in the state. they call it the bennett model. senator bennett won this way winning big with the republican women and women overall two years ago. the model goes back several cycles past to 2004. democrats have had a successful strategy of winning republican women because they might be sort of a push on economic issues. democrats picked them off by talking about sorm issues and the women healthcare. that is something they really feel resonates in suburbs like arapahoe county where you have the soccer moms and they're on the fence and they feel like that is an issue to push them off the fence. >> growing hispanic population in colorado, as in much of the west. how does it factor in
found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. >> mitt romney countered that 7.8% is nothing to celebrate. >> the reason it's come down is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> some conservatives continue to suggest that the president's labor department cooked the jobs report for his political gain, but most experts have roundly slapped down that possibility. numbers and politics with economist mark zandi and douglas holtz-akin and jackie of the "new york times" and cnn's chief white house correspondent jessica yellin, next. a speed bump!

with the unemployment rate. >> so it's too high? >> i want to play something that romney said saturday and get, first of all, your economic take and then the political take. >> it's the number of people. it's the percentage of the american population in the work force were the same today as when he was elected, our unemployment rate would be above 11%. this is inexcusable that a nation that's so prosperous as ours. >> this is the work force has shrunk argument. >> and the numbers are real. labor force paicipation, the fraction of people actually trying to find a job or have a job is at levels we haven't seen since 1981, and so the question becomes how many of those have left the labor force for good pursuits like retirement or to go to school, and how many are just so discouraged they've given up, and if it's really the latter, then we have a lot of ground to cover. >> we know demographics are playing a key role here. we're all getting older. baby boomers are approaching retirement, and they're retiring, so the participation rate that's fallen 2.5 percentage points in the past four or five years, 1.5
. >> highest unemployment. >> and the houses are upside down, and that's going to go with romney, iowa, obama. >> you think obama? >> again out there, the republicans have evened the registration divide, but -- >> michigan, the ryan bump does not exist. >> if you give that, the president is reelected. the president is like six points, but -- >> he wins. >> and virginia is a toss up, we'll give it to romney. >> new hampshire has gotten away -- >> you're giving that to the president too? >> so you have him at 284 with virginia a question mark. >> i don't know. >> let's give it to romney. >> if you give it to him, it's still a convincing win. this is what confounds a lot of republicans, he says why is romney not doing better here. they also say look at this, if you look at this historically, this is the first three quarters of gdp in the reelection years. george h.w. bush had growth, but people did not buy it. bill clinton has a big quarter, george w. bush got through what was a pretty struggling economy, but president obama's first two quarters, dismal compared even to 2004. how is this preside
care costs. >>reporter: the september report deprives the romney campaign that unemployment is above 8 percent for all of the entire obama presidency. that, obviously; in longer the case. hit health republican -- >>heather: ins say the underemployment rate could be more meaningful. why? >>reporter: that is unchanged. part-time jobs wereeported created last month. in other words, people cannot find full-time work so they are settling for part-time jobs. for too many members that does not pay the bills. >>heather: thank you, doug. >>gregg: tensions in spain with a new round of economic protests breaking out in dozens of cities. tens of thousands of protests are filling the streets upset with the cuts in government spending. one the biggest demonstrations taking place in madrid. there were 20,000 people marching there. protesters say that the austerity cuts will only increase unemployment and job insecurity. the jobless rate in spain already is nearly 25 percent. health thousands of pastors fighting for their right to preach politics just in time for election day, pulpit freedom sunday, a
. >> and unemployment levels are at historic highs among youth today. >> the problem romney has is he says if i'm elected president i will do the following things. the problem is when he was governor he actually raised the debt to the highest level per capita at any place in america. he increased tuition. and he increased taxes. those aren't the things he's saying on the campaign trail. that's just what he did as governor. >> so here's the thing i would say to you, governor. if governor romney's track record is relevant, then president obama's track record is relevant. and under president obama the debt has gone to $16 trillion -- he has racked up under his presidency more debt in a single term than every president combined before him. >> that was true with reagan, carter, nixon. >> you have to sit and deal with that track record. >> one other issue we haven't talked about yet, one of these 15-minute segments is going to be about health care. what is the question for mitt romney? i think he should double down and just explain the difference between romney care and obama care. he should own it.
a lot more of that. obviously at the debate and this is the next phase f that campaign. >> mitt romney leads according to our poll, on unemployment and the deficit. let me ask you this, ben, because one thing our viewers may assume is that democratic base is now energized and the convention is now partly responsible for that. rece recently, jim -- our new poll, how do you feel strength of support, 72% of voters are strongly excited. that's a virtual tie and extremely or very enthusiastic about voting in november, 65% of republicans. 64% of democrats. does that worry you? in '08, part of the reason the president won was his people were way more enthusiastic than john mccain's. >> we heard enthusiasm on the republicans side last year and now it's down to turn out. people are voting right now. today. they're starting to vote tomorrow this ohio. our supporters are camped out at polling places and thousands more democrats voted in iowa last week than republicans. that's the way we've built this organization on the ground for the past 500 days. we're ip venvesting in a ground organization. >
% unemployment. and yet, all sort of indicators-- there was a very compelling economic analysis that we're drifting into another recession because of obama. there has to be a contrast between a romney recovery and obama stagnation, and frankly it's not right or left. it's common sense getting the country back to work, having an american energy policy. north dakota has 2.7% unemployment. the governor of north dakota has a billion-dollar rainy day fund and they've had three tax cuts in a row. now romney should be focusing on that kind of big choice, and it's not really right or left so much as it is common sense versus fuzzy ideas they don't work. >> schieffer: they've also discovered oil out there. but i'll ask you about that in a little bit. we'll be back in one minute with a little analysis of this. it's something you're born with. and inspires the things you choose to do. you do what you do... because it matters. at hp we don't just believe in the power of technology. we believe in the power of people when technology works for you. to dream. to create. to work. if you're going to do s
in tomorrow's debate, mitt romney or president obama. could the unemployment rate be the october surprise that shakes things up in the election? and imagine flying the plane and your seat comes loose. it happened twice. we'll get right to it. we're 32 hours away from the first presidential debate. president obama and mitt romney taking the stage at the university of denver in colorado. a live picture. this inside that will. where the two men will face off for the first time. lost at stake for both candidates. according to our latest poll which is an average of five national polls it is tight race among likely voters the president has 49%, mitt romney at 46%. now both men in past moments wished they could have a do over. we recall a heated exchange between hillary clinton and president obama back in 2008's debate in south carolina. >> while i was working on those streets watching those folks see their jobs shipped overseas you were a corporate lawyer sitting on the board of walmart. i was fighting these fights. i was fighting these fights. knives fighting against those ideas when you were
's. iraq in 90 seconds with a man who says mitt romney is the underdog. stuart: 2400 people who collected unemployment in 2009 lived in households making more than a million dollars a year in income. the unemployment may have been paid to spouses or dependents of the millionaires, eliminating these payments to high earners would save only a small model money each year. senator tom coburn says it is just one example of out of control government spending. many people like to refer the underdog in sports, but what about politics. is this of romney that we will see tonight? >> you phrase that before. while i was fighting to save the olympics you're fighting to save the bridge to nowhere. the idea that i'm anti-immigrant as ripples of. >> and not in the bedding business. >> in not only endorsed me, this is the guy who is really conservative. i get 60 seconds. and you get 302nd to respond. stuart: that was met on the attack. ed klein, author of the book the amateur. that will be president obama. with us today. good to see. stuart: put aside the angry mitt romney, the attacking mitt ro
for calling in. we're waiting to hear from mitt romney who is in abingdon, virginia. let's get a republican view from texas. caller: good morning. i am calling in favor of obama. recently i reviewed that the unemployment rate had dropped to 7.8%. i am in favor of this, and i think that president obama is showing his commitment to the american people. host: you are calling on our republican line. are you a republican? caller: i am i democrat. host: we will try to get a republican. steve from tennessee. what do you think, does the drop in the unemployment rate have any effect on the presidential race? caller: first of all, i want to say that it is a false report. it is absolutely impossible for it to be 7.8%. this report has been skewed, just like the polls in obama's favor. i also want to comment on the health care. if the truth about the health care were known as far as the hidden taxes, this law absolutely destroys the american economy once it takes full effect. i also want to make one more comment -- of the people would take a look and investigate the background of peru, and investigate t
. what mitt romney says about the 47% people, i'm in that category. i wanted to lean toward him. i got injured at work a year ago and right now i'm not even receiving unemployment. i'm going to the medicaid system. thank god they are taking care of me. my doctors were not doing what they're supposed to do to diagnose me. i'd waited to see the specialist. now i am receiving proper treatment. i am also happy that my college student is able to get medical insurance through medicaid. he is still in college. those things i'm so happy for with obama but at the same time i do not like some of his views. governor romney, i didn't like his views on the 47% and i don't think he is there for the middle class. the country keeps on saying middle class. we have no income, nowhere to live. we have nothing. that is not even a class. who is going to fight for those people/ host: -- people? thank you for calling. natasha is undecided. who did you vote for in 2008 ? caller: obama. host: why are you undecided in 2012? caller: i just put the program on a few minutes ago. last night we had a doctor in our g
. that could hurt the president. >> it can, because it's sort of the right climate for mitt romney to take advantage of the president's battle ground, foreclosure of the country. double digit unemployment in the state here. worse than the national average. what the president is trying to do is say look, not just low her expectations from the debate but say he has got a better plan for the future. take a listen. >> governor romney is a good debater. i'm just okay. but what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing and restore security for hard working americans. the president trying to focus on the future not his record. the past seems to be working in this battleground not by a lot but the real clear politics average of recent polls here in nevada shows the president up 49% to 45% over mitt romney. again, this is one of those states with business background, economic background mitt romney should be breaking through. instead right now he is trailing. not by a lot but is he down here, shep. >> shepard: ed henry live in las v
. bush is the one to blame, but a romney campaign spokeswoman says, quote, under president obama, the middle class has suffered from crushing unemployment, rising prices and falling incomes. they can't afford to be buried for four more years. and the republican vp nominee, paul ryan, weighed in during a rally on this same topic late today in iowa. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. that means we need romney in denver, colorado. before we get to carl, we want to go to ed henry live with the president in las vegas tonight's. how is the prep going for the big deal tomorrow night? good evening. >> it's been hours of debate prep. it's been intense. they're being very tight lipped about what the president is doing to practice. but he tried to get out today from the resort he's staying at in henderson, nevada. he went to the hoover dam for the first time in his life. maybe get a fresh air or do thinking before tomorrow's first showdown face-to-face with mitt romney. interesting, you mentioned vice pre
people support him. at this point in time they don't know enough about romney and the specifics on his vision. he needs to lay some of that out. bill: in terms of specifics, maybe you hang one fact out there. i'm going to take the unemployment rate and do this with it. >> you have to be factual on those things. he laid out a tax plan without any details, what does that mean? bill: do you find most guys cheer their guy and boot other one? >> usually debates reinforce the side you are on. you look for the good points. center few people are totally neutral going in and it's not entertaining, it's educational. bill: that contradicts the point about saying maybe in the case of governor romney. there is a sliver of people saying i don't know enough about this guy. if he convinces me, he might get my vote. >> i think that's important. if the election were held by the polls he's a few points behind. he needs the debates to change the dynamics where people say this is a down to the wire race. he's a goodall tern tough. let's look at the details of his plan and programs. bill: do you find incumb
. from all oufs at njtv.>> both cg about unemployment in virginia. in southern virginia, mitt romney talked about supporting coal at his rally. we will show you that at 8:30 p.m. eastern. sunday morning, the connecticut senate debate, linda mcmahon against chris murphy. that the date is sunday morning, 11:00 eastern on c- span. >> need to tackle our challenges before they tackle us. we need to save and strengthen medicare and social security, and we are putting the ideas on the table. we are going to save these benefits for seniors and my generation so these promises are kept. >> they have laid out that what barack obama and joe biden did is they stole money from medicare and have done "obamacare." nothing could be further from the truth. >> thursday night, paul ryan and joe biden will face off in their only debate. this is from center college in danville, ky. you can watch beginning at 7:00 p.m. eastern, followed by the debate at 9:00. as the presidential candidates meet for the debates, we are asking high school students to send a message to the president as part of the student cam
8% unemployment. usually that means you lose, but mitt romney has run a lackluster campaign, particularly in august and september. you are starting to see in the swing states barack obama pulling ahead in virtually all of the polls, and if he comes and gets any more momentum, he has the momentum right now, obama, and he doesn't get stopped at all, then it could be a break-out for the president. on the other hand, mitt romney tonight is such an underdog, people don't think he is that fantastic of debater. they're underestimating him. he is quite good. he comes and seeming to have parody with the president and maybe get that zinger they're rehearsing so hard, get one in that works and hits this youtube media cycle playing over and over again. romney could turn into the swing states and there will be a dead heat again, and we'll be marching into october with it just being a toss-up. nobody really knowing who is ahead. >> doug, how important is this? we'll be watching. some people will be listening to it. you form your own opinion as it's happening here, but then there's all the
deficits, and growing unemployment, that it grows jobs. so governor romney really needed a game changer tonight. i hate to say this but i find myself agreeing with chris christie. governor romney really needed to turn the world upside down. he really need ad game changer tonight. i think you would be sore pressed to find that magic moment that was the game-changer tonight. and, so, that was my view in watching it anyway. i also thought the president did a very good job finally nailing governor romney down to admitting he does want to turn medicare into a voucher program. i thought the president pushed back on that very effectively, when he said, hey, if you're 55 you might want to listen to this. i'm still not sure exactly what governor romney was saying about his promise of $5 trillion in tax cuts. i mean i heard the platitudes but i didn't hear any specifics. and, i thought he was doing a lot of shape shifting on that one. >> governor, good evening. this is rachel. we've been talking on set here about our surprise we didn't hear more from the president on his standard attack line. we
has hurt unemployment and caused it to be above 8% for 40 months. and go through each of the policies that he's done that have caused the economy to go down. >> bill: final question, does mitt romney have to say, because you know the president is going to come after him -- look, here is what i'm going to phase out. some charitable stuff, some real estate stuff, does he have to do that or can he stay in the general area where he feels more comfortable? >> no. what he has to do is cast a vision that's a better alternative than the path we're on. >> bill: does that include specificity in those areas where the president is going to keep banging him and banging him and banging him, tell me, tell me, tell me? >> i don't think by and large it has to. there has to be a few specifics, but what he has to do is show that he offers a better way forward than the president does right now. >> bill: all right. mr. o'donnell, thanks very much. we hope you'll come back, by the way in a few days and assess what happened out there. all right? >> would love to. >> bill: directly ahead, the president count
factor here. the unemployment rate is a little bit higher than it is in the state-wide unemployment rate. and when they want to hear from the president and frankly from governor romney is how they can turn everything around. they want to hear how the country is going to be better in the next four years. most of them have talked about looking forward not looking back. i think both candidates probably could take some pointers from those folks. you're going to hear a lot of them on special report tonight. jenna: just really quick here, bret how specific do they want each candidate to get. we hear back and forth, they want real specifics, no they want great personality and leadership, the specifics are not that important. what are you hearing from voters. >> the people we talked to pretty much across the board were pretty much into the weeds on both sides. they wanted to know what exactly was going to happen, how it was going to affect them and how either person was going to turn the country around. the obama supporters say give the president more time, he hasn't had enough time to turn it a
. but romney is still prepping some zingers nonetheless. we may have got an bit of a preview in denver. here's a look. >> we've had 43 straight months with unemployment above 8%. what does the president have to say to all of this? he says forward. i think forwarned is a better term. >> see what he did there? the vice presidential nominees have busy schedules today with paul ryan campaigning in iowa and joe biden in north carolina. but nothing on romney's campaign schedule and president obama is just wrapping up some final debate prep in nevada. in ohio, early voting gets underway today. here's a look at some great video of people camping out to be able to cast their vote at the cuyahoga county board of elections. state senator nina turner was very first and said the long line is symbolic of how important voting is in ohio. cleveland mayor frank jackson also showed up for some moral support. so far 32% of republicans have requested early ballots. and 26% of democrats. and these early votes in ohio could really be symb
's also falling into another one of their talking olympians, that hispanic unemployment is above 10%. now it's below, 9.8%. >> this was not good 7.8 but all of the subcategories were falling. >> in contrast to what mitt romney was saying on the clip, where people have left the job market, that is so not true. there are 418,000 people who have entered the job market. you can't say the numbers are falling because people are quitting. >> the question is what is romney going to say for the next month of the election? i mean, his entire message has been obama isn't working. that is the tag line of his campaign. well, people are working. clearly it's not enough. but the central tenent of his campaign has been proving false. there's a weird distance between the news and what romney is saying. he's saying, things suck, okay, if you don't realize it, you're an idiot. i don't think that will square well, not only with voters but with the governors in all these states where romney is campaigning. i think he has a hard time the next month making his case. >> i almost felt bad for romney. he had final
factors, the unemployment numbers. one more time the president's team wins on the debate. certainly -- >> in other words, this is the briar patch. please three owe. >> i killed osama bin laden and i understand that. but the governor romney has to get back to the economy. that's where he wins in the numbers. he did have a chance to -- there wasn't patient enough to let this thing unfold long enough. i agree with you, this is not over yet. >> it would have been a tough issue -- >> is there anyone who would change their vote. is there anyone who cast their vote, 32 votes, you look at that map, it's a map filled with people already voting. right? that's where you have early voting. are any of the folks, if it turns out that there was missed intelligence about the likelihood that this was not a spontaneous event linked to al qaeda who were saying, man, i wish i could have my vote back. >> this is about the economy. the vast amount of americans have economy as their top concern. as we were talking about earlier, the issue of foreign policy only helps the president. even if there was somet
, unrelenting unemployment and the looming fiscal cliff over which america is about to fall. jenna in california writes, that's cute, jack. you think romney actually has a chance to win the first debate. i think it will be a miracle if romney can keep his foot out of his mouth. and robert writes treat it like a business deal. subcontract it out to a more qualified stand-in. don't go with the lowest bidder, you could end up with rick perry instead of ronald reagan and then you can fire them when they're done. if you want to read more about this, go to the blog cnn.com/caffertyfile or through our post on "the situation room" facebook page. >>> jack, thank you. new video appear to show u.s. journalist missing in syria. is it staged though? stand by. ry interesting in common. they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowledge of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's develop more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >>> and you're in "the situation room." happening now, top republican lawmakers
? 7.9. it's at 8.1. >> we call that the bush unemployment number. >> i know you do. i don't think americans have a short-term memory lapse. that's the problem with romney. not to mention romney is the gift that keeps on going. he keeps saying stupid things like 47%. if romney doesn't do himself any damage, he wins the debate. >> does he have to give specifics though? he's now been painted as this person who is going to be taxing the middle class to pay for wealthy people's tax cuts. does he have to get specific? >> i think lara will ask that. >> he's got to do well. he's got to show well in this. i don't think ratcheting up expectation is good. i think what you want to do if you're getting ready for the debate is ratchet down expectation. i think he'll do fine. he needs to have a knockout. it doesn't need to be a decision. it needs to be a ko. >> how much of this debate is going to be about the economy and jobs and taxes tonight as opposed to education, health care, social issues, what have you? >> well, all those things matter, certainly when it comes to education, that's the fut
is different from the people who live here for years. if obama could ask a question to mr. romney, how come he pays less taxes. he pays less taxes than president obama. how come? it is important for people to remember state funds are liquidated because -- i know many people who collect unemployment. i know a lot of people that are on disability and they do not deserve it either. they are disabled because -- i think it will experiment with that. secondly, the americans always when they are out of work, -- host: a couple of other stories. he goes on to talk about the relationship between the two. that is by thomas o'neill iii. he is talking about how the two were able to get things going. from "the washington post." that comes from "the washington post." mike is a republican caller. he is wing and on whether or not the real -- the american dream has been downsized. caller: i think it is an interesting conversation especially on the heels of the last two callers saying they felt the american dream was defined on anyone coming here to make it. he have to define what the american dream and tails. a
